Indian-inspired Dahi Toast with Herby Yogurt

Indian-inspired Dahi Toast with Herby Yogurt 

This recipe is inspired by Indian Dahi toast, a spiced yogurt sandwich full of fresh herbs. 

What is Dahi toast?

Dahi toast is a sandwich that is slathered with a yogurt filling and grilled. Believe it or not, it actually tastes like a spicy grilled cheese sandwich! The yogurt soaks into the bread and thickens, it isn't as gooey as a classic grilled cheese but it is just as creamy.

A lighter Dahi toast 

This recipe still has all of the flavors but it is a lighter version.  Fresh herbs like cilantro and green onion are chopped then mixed with fat-free yogurt. For a little more spice, you can add dried curry leaves and chili powder. Then the mixture is spread on crusty bread and that's it!

It is a great snack or a light dinner for those busy weeknights. It comes together in 10 minutes.
